Apply for Citizenship
With your permanent resident status and the waiting period passed by, we can start with your citizenship application. Once more, you have to prepare certain requested documents. You will then get an invitation for a short interview at your local Bulgarian embassy or consulate.
Only a few months after your interview, you will be granted with EU / Bulgarian citizenship. Congratulations! You are now an EU citizen with all its rights and duties. From now on, you can travel, live, work, and study in any EU member country.
Once you have obtained Bulgarian citizenship, you can apply for your EU / Bulgarian passport at your local Bulgarian embassy or consulate. And here you go, you are an EU citizen having your Bulgarian passport. Mission accomplished!
